‘Discoveries’ Exhibition and ‘Meet the Artists’ Sessions

The exhibition Discoveries is about our creative journey as textile artists.  The starting places are many and various and the results may not be what we expected or anticipated.  Some will use the theme to produce a body of work based on ‘discoverers’, whether scientists, writers, explorers, or on events or places.  Others will explore their ideas through internal thoughts, feelings and reflections.  By research, chance find or personal search we also aim to discover and explore new techniques and find new ways to work.  Join us on this voyage of exploration and see what we’ve discovered. ...

Ian Siegal

IAN SIEGAL: Though he is best known as a bluesman and variously described as a legend and a national treasure, a typical Siegal solo show is much more than blues, taking in the American folklore of songwriters such Guy Clarke and Townes Van Zandt, and his own genre-defying songs.

Dream Horse (PG)

Toni Collette stars in this rousing story of triumph over adversity based on a true story. When Jan Vokes (Collette), a Welsh cleaner and bartender, overhears a customer (Damian Lewis) at the pub talking about a racehorse he once owned, she is inspired to acquire her own. Managing to persuade her neighbours and friends to invest in her crazy scheme, they name their foal ‘Dream Alliance’  and rear him together.  Against all odds, he rises through the ranks and proves himself to be more than a match for the multi-million pound racehorses he comes up against—a true people’s champion from a working class Welsh community, taking on the equestrian establishment at their own game. ...
